My hubby and little one love pepperoni pizza. My son actually loves anything with cheese and pepperoni. With him, we have very busy schedule with his extracurricular. This recipe was inspired by one of those incidents.

That morning, we had a very late soccer game. The game was going to start close to noon. For a growing kid, this would be the time to eat. But due to the intense activities later, you would not want him to be too full.

So, these pepperoni pizza rolls were just perfect for this. We, as the parents, we could also eat something before going there while we needed to stand in the cold weather watching and enjoying the game.

Yes, you can use marinara sauce instead of regular tomato sauce for this pepperoni pizza crescent rolls. Since it always comes into a jar, the leftover can easily use in any spaghetti dinner. But there's a good news for using tomato sauce....the leftover can incorporate into many other recipes. Next thing you know, the whole week of dinner plan is right there for you.

Recipe Ingredients and Tools

Pepperoni Pizza Crescent Rolls Recipe and Directions


1 Roll Store-Bought Croissant Dough
4 slices Pre-sliced Mozzarella or White Cheese (cut into halves diagonally)
4 slices Sandwich size Pre-sliced Pepperoni (cut into halves)
1 (8 oz) Tomato Sauce (What new recipes can you make out of that sauce leftover? Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find out.)
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Dried Oregano
Ground Black Pepper


  1. Preheat oven 375F or as instructed on package.
  2. Line up the cut up cheese, pepperoni and tomato sauce.
  3. Line a baking sheet, at least 13" x 9", with parchment paper for easy clean up later (if baking sheet is smaller than recommended, use 2 baking sheet)
  4. Unroll the dough and separate the triangles.
  5. Spoon about 1 tsp tomato sauce on each triangle and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese, a pinch of Oregano and black pepper (go easy on Oregano or it will be too "perfumy". Also, if you are going to have tomato sauce for dipping, skip this step)
  6. Line pepperoni and sliced cheese on top of the sauce and roll up to make croissants (it may be slippery when you roll it. Use your fingers to tug the stuffing in while you roll the dough)
  7. Leave at least 1" space around each croissant.
  8. Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
  9. (If you skip the tomato sauce on the dough and save it for dipping later, warm up the sauce with a pinch of Oregano and black pepper in a small sauce pan while the rolls are in the oven)
  10. Let it sit in room temperature for 5 minutes before serving.

What to Do with the Leftover Sauce?

You most likely has plenty of tomato sauce left. You can do it in either ways:

1) Transfer the leftover into a air tight glass container and store in the fridge. It will be good for up to 7 days. As you know, throwing food away is the last thing I want to do. Just in case you have a headache of what to do with that leftover sauce, these recipes can use it up easily:

2) You can warm it up on the stove top and add some Italian seasonings, salt and pepper to flavor it up. Serve this along with this pepperoni pizza cresent rolls. Since this can be a to-go meal, you may want to skip the dipping sauce to avoid the mess.
